BIG News of the Day!

A Small Group of Investors Spent $24.5 Billion on Bitcoin in the Last Few Months, Louisiana Lawmakers Back Bill That Says Bitcoin Could Potentially Become New Monetary Reserve, Gemini users can now buy Bitcoin with Apple Pay and Google Pay, and Nexus Mutual moves to sunset legal entity, lift KYC requirements.

My Hot Take!

Happy Monday! Now this is how you kick a week off :) Bitcoin has regain a lot of what it lost since Friday but we are now just hitting the first level of overhead resistance on a 3 month daily chart. If we can jump $55K and then jump $57K we might be able to go back to ATHs once again. Meanwhile, keep your eyes on another pullback of sideways action. I fully anticipate some big news (maybe from Elon Musk) being dropped this week so fingers crossed.


The big news of the day is mind blowing and many have just meh the news. $24.5B is about 20x what Elon Musk put into Bitcoin. I continue to say it FOLLOW DAT MONEY! Altcoin market is bouncing hard as well. The favorite Blue Chip Alts are performing well and the low priced alts have serious potential to perform.


The overall bullish sentiment remains so even though we have these pullbacks, it's just a matter of time before we are starring at $100K and many beating themselves up because they didn't get off zero. There is a growing trend of announcements that retailers are accepting Bitcoin and other Digital Assets for payment; this could lead to approved regulation to use it as a medium of exchange. The regulatory landscape continues to look favorable so stay STRONG and HODL on!
